The Sucre Shawl is a winter essential, ideal for both staying at home or layering over you favourite outwear. We also like to layer this shawl in the evening during the windy midseason months.
The Sucre Shawl is as luxurious as it is versatile. Made in Uruguay by skilled artisans, it is hand-woven from a lightweight merino wool and silk blend in a beautifully textured twill weave. Perfect day or night, it also doubles up as a scarf and travel blanket.
